The dynamic nature of handling undesirable, irritant and toxic items during digestion process by the defense mechanism associated with the human gastrointestinal tract helps avoid intake of hazardous material in the body. The defense mechanism acts in coordination with the sensory organs and nervous system to keep a human healthy. In this paper, we have mapped the defense mechanism associated with the human gastrointestinal tract from the biological/nature domain to the computer science/information technology domain for proposing a gastrointestinal tract inspired computing model. The proposed model has its roots purely in the biological domain with the softbots used as the main building block for processing. The processing is facilitated by a centralized learning center that mimics the human nervous system functionality.
